Activists Protest in Front of Henry Kissinger’s Memorial Service

HeadlineJan 26, 2024

Here in New York, a memorial service for national security adviser and Secretary of State Henry Kissinger was met with protests Thursday. Activists chanted “Burn, Henry, Burn,” as they remembered the 4 million people Kissinger’s actions have killed across the globe.

Rosa: “We mourn the millions he killed. We mourn those in Cambodia, in Vietnam, in Laos, in Bangladesh, in East Timor, in Chile, in Argentina, in Cyprus, in Iraq, in Palestine and in Angola. As we mourn the dead, we also honor those who fight to live. The litany of resistance groups that have stood up to Kissinger’s imperialism outlive Henry Kissinger.”

Activists held up signs that said “Henry Kissinger, war criminal.”
